A new study that was published in Journal of the American Geriatrics Society entitled "Turning for Ulcer Reduction: A Multisite Randomized Clinical Trial in Nursing Homes" suggests that nursing homes that use high-density foam mattresses may not need to turn residents multiple times per day. Health Leaders Media reported the story "50 Years of Fighting Pressure Ulcers Called Into Question" which suggests a change in the way we treat and prevent pressure ulcers.
